. >> thank you for your time. >> what will the president tell the country on monday about debt and deficit spending and how we get that under control, ben? >> well, i think that the president will follow precedent when it comes to the inaugural address and lay out a broader vision for are where we take the country in the next four years and to talk about how some of our founding principles and values can drive us through the challenges we continue to face. i think the state of the union address will be more of the agenda, more discussion of how we get it done with congress and enlisting the is support of the american public. >> so nothing on monday about spending then? >> well, i can't specifically say that the remarks aren't totally finalized yet. i think what you will see is the broader vision. the specific agenda will come in the days ahead. there was a statement out of the white house on friday addressing the proposal that the republicans have put on the table right now. it looks like they may be breaking the ice a little bit and not holding the nation's full faith and credit hostage f
unemployment continue to be a major factor. and when you look at the trade deficit we have, which peter morici more than anybody has tracked, we, we have issues dealing with our economy. we aren't dealing with. spending should be --. melissa: absolutely are. >> don't go putting us in the tank here. melissa: what is the best outcome for the economy with the debt limit debate? >> we certainly have, the dennis is right they have to raise the limit right now. however, i think that linking the next extension with passing a budget is a good thing because after all, how much you raise the limit is going to be a function of how much you intend to spend more than you take in. and so, we do at some point have to get to disciplining spending and linking it to how much additional we borrow. i think that is a reasonable thing to do. so i like the strategy of, you know, may 1th. -- 19th. that said, we really can't reduce the deficit a lot unless we do something about our budget deficit. you see, the trade deficit. the trade deficit detracts from demand. the budget deficit adds to demand. if you're going to
? >> the budget is the most imminent issue. we do have a structural budget deficit in the city. we need to deal with the short- term balancing of the budget in a way that does not decimate basic city services that people rely on but also to address our long term structural budget deficit. that means implementing budget reforms that will smooth out the budget process so that it is not a boom-bust process. that means reforming our pension and retiree system so that they are stable and do not drain the general fund. that is a big aspect of it. another huge issue is the deferred maintenance on our infrastructure. we have a lot of infrastructure that has been deteriorating because we have not maintained properly. that includes roads, sewer systems, muni. we need to be much more diligent about maintaining our infrastructure. some of the big citywide issues that impact the district include transportation. we had more muni service and some other districts. it is not always reliable. some of the major bus lines in the district are not reliable. we have major projects like the renovation of delores park.
isn't a very good one for them. working on deficit and spending budget is better for them. >> reporter: what do democrats say about passing a budget today. >> reporter: chuck schumer said the senate would pass a budget this year. the battle will be over spending cuts and what is included in that very budget. yesterday with the top congress alleaders at his inaugural luncheon president obama called for working together. >> i recognize that democracy is not always easy, and i recognize there are profound differences in this room, but i just want to say thank you for your service, and i want to thank your families for their service, because regardless of our political persuasions and perspectives, i know that all of us serve because we believe that we can make america for future generations. >> reporter: first challenge will be that debt ceiling vote tomorrow the first of many fiscal issues to be tackled in this new term. >> reporter: let the games begin. mike emanuel, thank you very much. what is the likelihood of a senate budget resolution. coming up minutes from now we'll speak to one
economic problems here. there was a $10 billion budget deficit that was much more than expected. that has become a big issue. the rising cost of living here has become a big issue and that's the thought that this precipitous drop, it was that he and his right-wing coalition hash 70 seats projected 2 months ago. they have fallen in the polls and there is now talk of them bringing on board a center party, run by a charismatic television anchor, turped politician. this person is demanding tax cuts for the middle scplases demand that the religious go to war, something that won't sit well with mr. netanyahu's base. going forward, he may have won, but it will be a very uncomfortable and probably tense couple of weeks to figure out which one of his friends he will put together to get to the crucial 61 number. >> neil: completing our trifecta of big stories today, i want to bring your attention to the stock market, up despite an ominous warning from bill gross, pacific income management, owns more treasuries, notes and bonds, save the u.s. government than anyone and warn that this government comi
to see him as the paragon of responsible spending. >> we'll start with the deficit, shrinking more rapidly than at any time since the end of the korean war. in the end of december, we had a deficit for the month of $260 million, not $260 billion, $260 million. which in washington is almost the budget. that's the smallest monthly deficit in five years. some of that is artificial. people pulling transactions forward because they were afraid of higher tax rates in 2013. but for the first three months of 2013, we have a rapidly shrinking fiscal 2013, we have a rapidly shrinking deficit. so we are in a way chasing a vanishing problem. >> which is interesting, and that would allow for some things that are dirty and things that are not so dirty, would completely perhaps get rid of this problem after a while. do you think we're headed for a full stalemate? >> it's such a shame. i think david is right because we have low debt service right now. we're paying less interest on our debt than we had in the reagan and bush administrations before because interest rates are so low. >> but they're g
. on the newshour tonight, we'll examine what the president said about tackling the government deficit and reducing gun violence. >> brown: then, we turn to the west african nation of mali, where french troops have launched air strikes on islamic militants. three jihaddist groups now deemed a clear and present danger to the capital and beyond, a threat to africa and europe. >> woodruff: margaret warner has the story of the suicide of a young internet wizard who was facing federal charges for hacking and distributing online data he thought should be made public. >> brown: ray suarez updates the changes in cuba, where travel restrictions were eased today for citizens hoping to come and go. >> it is still one of the most repressive places in terms of its human rights record but we welcome any liberalization. we hope that will turn out to be one such. >> woodruff: and with rehearsals already under way for next week's inaugural ceremonies, we examine the new rules for raising money for the festivities. >> brown: that's all ahead on tonight's newshour. >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provi
, we understand what's going on in the debt and deficit and destruction but we have a bunch of debt deniers right now other in the senate that, look, this -- this debt devastate -- devastation that's coming is coming. do we have an obligation to try to find a way to actually get a piece of legislation all the way to the president's desk where we get to start to bend the curve? something beyond the messaging bill to actually an accomplishment. and that's -- and that's going to be the battle. >> you asked if this is a test of the relevance of the conservatives in the conference. i would say that really, most conservatives are willing to suspend disbelief and trust the leadership right now that we'll have a conservative outcome after the last three months. it's really a test of this new pact, if you will, of leadership to get to a 10-year balanced budget, to hold the c.r. at 974. we'll see if those things come to pass. i certainly hope they do. but i would submit to you it's more of a test of what the leadership is going to do than it is of the conservative element. >> i would say it's
budget laid out a plan how to deal with america's biggest problems, our debt, deficit and ongoing spending. if we don't reform we'll end up bankrupting this country and it is unfair to the next generation not to stop this. it is time for the senate to step up and act. bill: republicans referencing the speech from yesterday with one reference to the deficit. if no debt limit is reached, however, the government could default on its obligations within weeks so watch that story. martha: well, this is an interesting one. pro golfer, phil mickelson, doing a little bit of backpedaling today saying he regrets the public comments he made on the issue of his taxes in california. mickelson said he may move out when he made the original comments, of the state, because all taxes combined end up to more than 60% tax rate. now he is telling fox news contributor jim gray, quote, finances and taxes are a personal matter and i should not have made a opinions of, on them public. i apologize to those who i have upset or insulted and i assure you i intend not to let it happen again. why would he feel
that with the government facing another trillion dollar deficit this year, any increase in borrowing authority must be tied to cuts in spending. the president flatly disagreed. >> i want to be clear about this. the debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending. so while i'm willing to compromise and find common ground over how to reduce our deficits, america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. >> brown: the 2011 stand-off between the president and republicans over the debt ceiling led the nation to the bryning of national default. standard and poors even lowered its rating on u.s. government bonds. today, president obama said any repeat performance would be, quote, irresponsible. >> if the goal is to make sure that we are being responsible about our debt and our deficit, if that's the conversation we're having, i'm happy to have that conversation. what i will not do is to have that negotiation with a gun at the head of the american people. >> brown: at the same time, the president rejected urgings by some de
term deficit reduction plan." you will recall that standard & poor's did downgrade the u.s. debt last august after the debt ceiling was raised amidst 11th hour suspense. it was blamed on bringmanship to use the debt creeling to get spending cuts. s&p did cite the melodrama as part of the reason but placed emphasis on the view that the debt ceiling deal fall short in what our view would be necessary to stabilize the government median term debt dynamics. translation, the debt ceiling deal didn't do enough about the debt itself. so keep this in mind when you hear it said,be with great certainty it's the republicans trying to force spending cuts over endangering the nation credit rating. as will rogers quoted once, "it isn'tbe what we don't know that gives us trouble. it's what we know that ain't so." bret? >> bret: the president has effectively turned the messaging around. by saying it's about paying the bills that congress has already passed. the laws that it's already passed. republicans are saying it's about borrowing authority. essentially running up the country's credit card. >> exa
fighting for such a plan, one that would reduce our deficits by $4 trillion over the next decade which would stabilize our debt and our deficit in a sustainable way for the next day-to-day. jon: so what about that statement from the president, true or false? a fact check on that and a bunch of others. we'll have the answers for you coming up. jon: right now lawmakers are working on a strategy to try to keep the government running. they only have about 4-6 weeks left before the nation hits the national debt ceiling. republicans are calling for budge cuts in return for raising the debt ceiling, but president obama came out swinging during his news conference on monday claiming he's already gone a long way toward closing the budget gap. joining us now to fact check some of his statements, stephen hayes, a senior writer for the weekly standard and a fox news contributor, douglas holtz-eakin is now president of the american action forum. just as a general rule, steven, when you heard the president speaking in that news conference, was he generally being honest with the american people about
a conversation about how to redust our deficit let's have that. we've been having that nor the last two years. we just had an entire campaign about it. by the way the american people agreed with me that we should reduce our deficits in a balanced way that takes into account the need for us to grow this economy. martha: bob beckel is former democratic campaign manager and cohost of the five. mary katherine ham is editor at large and fox news contributor. why do you think it was so testy yesterday? >> obama's best form is not necessarily a press conference which is why he does than do many of them. i which he was testy for one real reason. the republicans trying to take the full faith and crucify the united states currency and putting it at fist being. i'd invoke the 14th amendment, we'd problem below know that if we spent more time with the republicans wasting time on the floor of the house. i thought he ought to raise it and to hell with congress. martha: we talked to stewart varney and kirsten said in that sound byte, this isn't about default, people don't think we aren't going to pay the debt o
the debt ceiling. this is the question we posed. is reduce the federal deficit a worthy goal? this is interesting you may recall white house press secretary made news by stating that deficit reduction is, quote not a worthy goal onto itself. 77% of voters disagree with them and that includes large majorities of republicans, independents and democrats. what is your take on this? >> again i don't want to be a downer here, the question is what urgency to do they place on that. we had an election two months ago where there were two candidates, one was more focused on cutting the deficit and reducing our long term debt and one didn't think it was a big concern. the one who didn't think it was a big concern won the election. yes, voters seem to say that is an issue they agree with, but when it came to election day two months ago that certainly wasn't one of the top issues they voted on because they voted for the candidate who wasn't embody go it. >> heather: through his actions, as well. that leads to this, how f or if it should be raised? should the debt limit be raised again, 23%
-or-no. >> no risk. >> the debt ceiling was raised in august the political fight in the spot lighted on the deficit and debt problems less s&p to downgrade the u.s. credit rating for the first time in history. >> geithner steered the major economic moves in the first term and now he is stepping down. president obama's pick to replace him is jack lew, who has established a close relationship with the president. lew is not is chummy with republicans on the hill after the debt ceiling negotiation back in 2011. for that reason and others, his confirmation hearing could be bumpy. if confirmed, he will be dealing with the top issue in this second term, how to get the economy moving and addressing the country's long term fiscal problems. >> this is a president that is forced to grapple with the budget woes, with the economy that cannot get over the hump. it will consume most of his time, i believe, in the second term. >> what he cannot do going into the term is go from economic crisis to economic crisis. that is not leadership. he has to figure out how to address this in ay way. our health care reform can
prepare for battle. over the debt, the deficit and spending. this is "special report." ♪ ♪ >> bret: good evening. i'm bret baier. if there is a hanimoon at all for president obama in the second term, it could be four months. that is how long the house republicans want to extend the debt limit with a many strings attached bill that has the critics cowering on both sides of the aisle. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel at the capital tonight. >> reporter: house leaders are planning a vote tomorrow to increase borrowing authority through may 18. i would include the house and senate pass resolutions by april 15. if it's not passed it would withhold the salaries putting them in escrow. resistance to the debt limit vote so far comes from the rank and file house conservatives. >> we have half a budget, but raising the debt ceiling for a budget to be named later is to me something i probably won't be able to vote for. >> if you raised it for three months unconditionally, three months from now what principles do you stand on to keep you from raising it again? >> all republicans have b
connell, they believe the size of government, debt and deficit is is the biggest issues. and if you listen to the speech yesterday, he made only passing references to that. talk of immigration reform, many republicans including the speaker want to work with the president on that but if he talks a lot publicly, it puts pressure on the conservative base which any legal status is amnesty. the president also talking about gun control and gun rights, just talked to tom fuentes, it stretches the political coalition. the things that the president highlighted and spend more time on his inauguration address, the republicans are saying now you see the real obama. now that he doesn't have to face the voters in four years, he's going to move to the left and gay rights, gun control, grassroots that stress the republican coalition and likely to strain an already difficult relationship between the president and leaders and the man we're about to hear from john boehner is most important because he runs the house. >> i heard from a few republicans. they thought after they cooperated with the president to avert the fisca
, most of the people are ceos and in business, they are not optimistic. there is a deficit of confidence, and that's because you have budgetary problems in the united states, you have the eurozone problem, you have china, india slowing down. these other issues are very much on their agenda. so, you and i, as the week will go on, will distill this into what really they're talking. at the moment, the one word to keep in mind, risk. where it lies at the moment. >> and if they think that it's risky, business people and they're trying to get a sense of where we are with the economy if they think it's risky, how is that impacting us? everyday folks here who are looking at their, you know, paychecks and homes and wondering if it's going to change, if it's going to get better. >> reporter: well, this is a fascinating part because the pwc, consulting company, brought out a survey which talks about risks and the crucial parties, the businesses, are brilliant at adapting, being diverse. they are used to these so-called black swan risks that come out. and to answerer your blunt question, what happen
of the tax code hasn't happened since 1986 when the political system was much less polarized. but deficit hawks insist a big deal, a so-called grand bargain is critical for jumping starting u.s. economic growth. >> we've got to reform the tax code and probably raise more revenues than we have and importantly we have to focus on controlling spending and reforming our entitlements which are right now unsustainable. delaying all of this is irresponsible. >> reporter: hard choices ahead whether the congress and the president can come together remains to be seen. christine romans, cnn, new york. >>> and, remember, you can catch a special inauguration coverage right here on cnn live coverage begins on sunday. continuing into monday. our mornings begin at 9:00 a.m. eastern. don't miss it. when you have diabetes... your doctor will say get smart about your weight. i tried weight loss plans... but their shakes aren't always made for people with diabetes. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shakes. they have carb steady, with carbs that digest slowly to help minimize blood sugar spikes. and th
the president called for action on everything from deficit reduction to immigration reform and combating climate change. ed henry live at the white house. so what's the administration saying now about all of this? >> well, shep, as you noted. climate change was something that the president was particularly aggressive about and saying he will do something in his second term in office. the problem is he tried earlier in the first term and he got a bill through the house, but it died in the senate. and so there is some question about whether he can really move forward on this and today when we pressed jay carney about it, he didn't really have a lot of details. take a listen. >> i'm not going to, i appreciate the interest in this issue. one that the president shares, but, you know, i'm not going to preview or speculate about actions. beyond what i have said already. >> carney did note in the first term the president raised fuel efficiency standards for vehicles. he says that will have a major impact on climate change in terms of saving and not using as many fossil fuels. he says the president plans
, congress is where he should go next. >> he called me, mark, you got to do this. talking about debt, deficit, government spending, 15, 20 years ago when no one was much focused on it here is a chance to take what you learned on the way up, what you learned on the way down. what you learned in congress before, the governorship and apply it to the debate of our time. >>> piers morgan will have an exclusive interview at 10:00 p.m. eastern on cnn. >>> quint se conrad bain, the d different strokes, has died. only one surviving member, willis. >> such a great show. you think of all of the drama cast members had over the years. >> i don't remember. i don't think i was born then. >> that show was a long time ago. >> amazing. >>> still ahead this morning on "starting point," hottest pregnant sri lankan, hottest indian chick. just a document categories in the "qq" hottest women of the millennium issue. we'll talk about that straight ahead. >>> and the girlfriend of notre dame's linebacker manti te'o died, millions came to his side. it was all a hoax. it wasn't caught and why not? mark greenberg and ma
form deliberate of an overhang lie the u.s. there is an issue with respect to fiscal deficit. where we saw the debt ceiling. so if that were to get into any kind of a logjam, not getting results, there can be some amount of sentiment that can impact us. and impact the customers and, therefore, to us. similarly in india, you look, the budget is going to come up in february. worry seeing further moderation in interest rates. but we still do not know, because quarter four tends to be a very good quarter. we have concern because we have very good revenue comes from india gee of fee. but some of those moves that will happen by the government and therefore the decision for investment and therefore there is a little bit of uncertainty. that is a big reason why we have given a guidance of .5% to 3% in large range. >> suresh -- >> based on the deal plan that we have, we feel that -- what? >> so just to be clear, you're basically saying just so people know what we're talking about, the guide kwans for the current quarter was between 1.2% and 3.5%. you came in at 2.4% revenue growth. your guidanc

is more than simply deficit reduction, they are suspicious about government commitment to make sure that seniors have decent health care and whether government should make sure that kids in poverty are getting enough to eat. that's an outrageous statement to begin with. on top of that that's not exactly a great way to forge bipartisan consensus. it o it's one thing to question your opponent's policies and another to question their motives. and he's not interested in forging bipartisan consensus on the debt, he's interesting in demonizing and dividing republicans and he's going to continue to do that in his second term. >> megyn: why would he be doing that, simon? >> i think it's called politics, megyn. i think what we expect out of our president, just like we expect out the republican party, is for them to fight as hard as they can for the things that they believe in. and to be -- and to make clear about what they believe the other side is doing, too. listen, i listened to rick santorum at the republican convention say that if barack obama is reelected it will be the end of the repu
